Reeses Cup Frozen Yogurt Bites

17 Jul

Remember those fruity frozen yogurt bites I shared with you all the other day? Well as the chocoholic I am, I had to make a different variety.

See, chocolate and peanut butter may be my two favorite things. Well almond butter actually,  but peanut butter comes close behind.  That is why I was always a Reese’s cup lover. Unfortunately they are anything but healthy.

That is why I created these. A healthy, cold, refreshing, and delicious take on the typical Reeses cup! High in protein and low in fat, these should be a winner in anyone’s eyes.

Stored in the freezer, they are the perfect little bite of heaven at any time of the day. Even breakfast! Watch out though, mine disappeared extremely quickly :)

    Does the chocolate layer have any liquid added to it ? These sound great!

      Hi Tammy!
      I did not add any as I wanted the layer to be thicker and filled with chocolate flavor. But if you find it is too thick, you can add a tablespoon or two of milk!

        Does the cocoa/stevia mix get added to the other half of the base? In your recipe, it makes it seem as though you just throw the powder over the top of the frozen PB layer…?

        Yes, it gets added to the other half of the base. Sorry for any confusion.

    This looks so good! I’ve always loved me some reese’s cups :)

    I made these today and have to say that I wasn’t a fan. Normally I like all the ingredients that you combined, but the flavor was very blah and bitter. I look forward to trying your next recipe though :)

      I am so sorry to hear that! I love the flavors of peanut butter and chocolate, did you add enough sweetener? I tend to not like things very sweet, but as always, as you taste while making, feel free to add more stevia or honey!
